Notes:

Mike Tyson 6-0 (6 KOs) vs. Lorenzo Canady 3-0 (1 KO)

Fight was on the undercard of Juan Ramon Santana vs. Bruce Williams.

It was Tyson’s third fight in just over a month.

Tyson’s weight was announced as 214.5 lbs.

Tyson’s first punch, a solid overhand right, caught Canady just four seconds into the fight. A left hook at ten seconds sent Canady falling back and tangled in the ropes. It was correctly ruled that the ropes kept him from going down and he received a mandatory eight-count. Tyson backed an already wobbled Canady into a corner and landed a right that snapped back his head. A continued barrage led the referee to step in and wave an end to the fight as Canady was headed down for the second time.
